“Poor experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We went with two little kids today for the second day in a row. Kids (1 & 3) had a great time both days on the rides etc.; however, we had several poor experiences on the second day and us adults were not impressed. Wasted 20 minutes outside waiting for the doors to open when it turns out they were open the whole time (no posted hours on the door). Lots of games were out of order. The first game we tried worked until we hit the jackpot and then it did not give us the tickets. Turns out they knew it was out of order but didn't put a sign on it. They refunded my 1 token. Second game, the tickets jammed. Saw a bouncy castle coupon on their website indicating kids could get 10 min instead of 8 min for the tokens that you pay. As staying at a relatives place I couldn't print it. Indicated I had seen it but was told they couldn't have the additional 2 minutes without a printed coupon. Honestly? 2 minutes ... and there was no one else in the place??? A lot of other little things but just kept adding up. (Nicely) complained to supervisor and was (nicely) told too bad! Well, we left after our tokens were gone and don't plan on going back. A small gesture to apologize for us not having a good time would have kept us happy (paying) customers. $60+ dollars on food and additional rides and games not spent today! Disappointing as we had heard great things about this place.

“Last train to Colasanti's”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Used to come to Colansanti's and spend an entire day shopping in the huge selection of bedding and tropical plants, sitting under the full grown orange, lemon, banana, and grapefuit trees while enjoying fantastic chicken and of course the donaughts.

Now most of the trees and plants are gone and you have to enjoy the chicken in the midst of screaming kids and the noise of carnival rides not much shopping left and the place is really run down...the donaughts are just not enough to have me come back. Too bad you really had a great place now its just cheesy.

“Fun day with our Grandson”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

This was our first trip and we had a great day with our Grandson. He is only 2 but there was enough to keep him occupied. He loved seeing all the animals and being able to run around outside. I only had one issue and this was with the other patrons at the time we were there. There are signs posted to not pick up baby goats, yet some parents thought it was quite funny to have their children pick up the baby goats and drop them!!!!! Perhaps more staff present would have rectified this issue. We will go back the next time our Grandson is visiting.
